Totally Gorjuss (GDT) - Flower Power

Hello friends... it's Saturday again and what does that mean... it's another Totally Gorjuss challenge...  Have we got a lovely one for you... it's Flower Power... so get out all those lovely floral designer papers and flowers and come join in the FUN.  Our wonderful sponsor is Crafters Companion.

I decided to make an easel card for a change, seeing that I haven't made one in absolute ages.  I forget how nice they actually are to make.  For this card I've used 2 stamps from Magnolia's range of stamps, Jam Tilda and Spring Fence, both purchased from 7 Kids College Fund.

Miss Jam Tilda and the Spring Fence were coloured in with Copics.  I used some foam tape to pop her onto that fence.  I then punched a tiny butterfly to pop into the corner of the gorgeous floral DP, which didn't have a name on it, sorry!

I cut out one of the lovely flowers from the DP, matted it onto brown cardstock and then placed it in the corner of the card. The birthday sentiment is an old one from Lili of the Valley.  I also put together a lovely arrangement of flowers to compliment our theme. Some were bought and others were gifts from my lovely crafty girlfriends.

I hope I've managed to inspire you to take part in our challenge... please visit the Totally Gorjuss blog to see the rest of my TG Teamies creations... you will love them!

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
   Do you Stack up - Birthday
   The Outlawz - Summer
   Magnolia Stamp Lovers - Anything Goes
   Official Magnolia Inspiration - Birthday

Thanks for popping by and I'd love for you to leave a comment as I so enjoy reading them. 

Tons of hugs, Sharon x

Hi Sharon!
I love the Easel card you have made.
The colors are so nice and Tilda matches the paper perfectly. your coloring is lovely. I love those flowers especially the white one in front. I tried to make one like that when I had seen some like it on another blog. Couldn't get the middle quite right. Good idea cutting out one from the DP to put on the side.
Hugs Maz
